The Power of Prayer by Sister Lucia

Prayer is necessary for all, and we must all pray, whether our prayer is vocal, mental or contemplative.
Vocal prayer– that is addressed to God in words.
Mental prayer– talk to God about the subject on which you are meditating, for example, an increase in faith, humility, charity or a spirit of sacrifice, in order to overcome our repugnances and difficulties, defects and temptations.
Contemplative prayer– even closer intimacy with God, in which those practising in it enter more deeply into presence of God within them, abandoning themselves more intimately to the work of the grace, light and love of God within them. Wrapped in a supernatural atmosphere, the soul allows itself to be imbued, raised up and transformed by the action of God within it, purifying and absorbing it.

There is another kind of prayer: it is the “Prayer of our work”, of the performance of all the duties in our state in life in a spirit of humble submission to God, because it was He who imposed on us the law of work.
There is nothing on earth which can be compared to the happiness experienced by a soul in intimate union with God!
“Ask and it will be given to you, seek and you shall find, knock and it will be opened to you (Mt7, 7-8)

Prayer for Humility

Prayer for Humility


Oh my Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I love you,

Teach me the wisdom of true Humility,

Give me the courage to accept from the Holy Spirit

Just what was, is, to be.

Let my thoughts be always Charitable

And help me to be Obedient

and give a Good Example to others.

Oh, my beloved, thou also My God,

Make my heart a flame of pure love for you.

Give me this virtue of Humility

To Know, Understand and live my life

In order to become like Jesus

At the hour and moment

at midnight in Bethlehem in piercing cold.

Forgive me Jesus, for all my weaknesses and temptations,

And help me to renounce the world, the flesh and the devil,

in order to live in a closer unity with my heavenly Father,

so that I may unite myself with you.

Amen.
